Vision and Values

Our vision is to create independent, happy, healthy and confident people by developing their skills for lifelong learning in an ever-changing world.

The school conducted a survey of all stakeholders and asked for their views in shortening our vision by using a few of the key words to describe the school.

The result was:

Happy, Confident, Achievers

Mission Statement

Who are we and what do we do?

At Shears Green Infant School, we are focused on enabling children to become confident and creative builders of their own future.

We do this through a team of people who are caring, nurturing, supportive to each individual. We believe families are the key to developing enthusiastic learners therefore the relationship between school and home is a two-way communication.

We promote and continuously develop a creative curriculum with purpose and meaning to the lives of the children we support, nurture and educate. The curriculum encompasses the richness of the children's lives, the local community and the evolving world around them. We believe children can meet the academic challenges we present to them with openness, enthusiasm and a willingness to solve problems.

We believe in creating an environment where appropriate risks can be taken creating socially and academically responsible people. Through providing a school climate whereby children feel happy, safe and supported we believe we will provide lifelong learners to the world.
